On Wednesday, July 10, at 6:30pm, join us here at Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park to meet the notorious Lizzie A. Borden. She has a story to tell!
Lizzie Andrew Borden was tried and acquitted in a court of law for the ax murders of her father and stepmother in 1892, in Fall River, Massachusetts. However, the court of “public opinion” sentenced her to a life of public scrutiny and branded her a social pariah.
Lizzie will share the story of her life in Fall River, her memories of the trial and how she learned to live in a world that had drastically changed for her, once she was acquitted of the murders.
Kim Harris, who will portray Lizzie A. Borden, is an accomplished Chautauquan who has performed several characters from our local and Western history, at venues such as The Genoa Cowboy Poetry Festival and Genoa Western Heritage Days in Genoa, Piper’s Opera House in Virginia City and the Gold Hill Hotel in Gold Hill. She has also performed at, and is the events manager of Dangberg Home Ranch Historic Park.
